Here is a fast and fabulous layout that I did recently for a page call. I swear it was one of the quickest layouts I’ve done in a long time and it was so refreshing to keep it simple and do something quick, unlike my usual heavily embellished and detailed layouts. I started with this sketch that I had already drawn up on a scrap of paper that had been waiting for me to pay some attention to.
To make your own epoxy embellishments is really simple with a product like Stampin' Up’s Crystal Effects (I know there are other similar products out there, but this is what I used). I first took a little birdie stamp and stamped it on my white circle. I applied Stickles in crystal, and let dry. Then I covered the entire surface with the Crystal Effects, make sure you do this on some scrap paper. It goes on a little cloudy and thick, but don’t worry, it will dry clear and you are left with what looks like a homemade epoxy sticker. This is a great way to add dimension to many things, and much less expensive than some embellishments out there!
